Before we begin, a note
I will be appearing at the Dublin, Ohio Irish
Fest on August 1 to 3, and will be at two tents
there this year. First, at the genealogy tent
all weekend. Second at the ceili tent on Fri.
and Sat. evenings, with the Irish Roots Cafe
house band for traditional and old style song.

First of it’s Kind
We have six podcast series on record here,
and hundreds of episodes, at the Irish Roots Cafe.
One series I designed particularly for Kansas City
Irish history,through interviews with experts and
normal folks of Irish descent.

Hundreds of Thousands
The number of hits that we have had
on the web for these shows has run into
the hundreds of thousands. If you have an
interest in the history of the Irish in KC,
it will be worth your time to check these out.

Breakdown: Season 1 and 2
The first 23 broadcasts are interviews with
dancers, shopkeepers, historians, band members,
authors, and various local personalities.
(I also include 3 shows on the Irish in Georgia,
or ‘lost tribes of the Irish in the South).

Browne’s Irish Street Faire, Season 3
Browne’s Irish Marketplace is the oldest Irish family
run business in North America, and it is located in
Kansas City, Missouri.
I have recorded regularly at Browne’s Irish Street
Street Faire, interviewing the man on the street,
so to speak. From the parish priest, to old time
patrons, and interesting folks that I found there.
I have 11 interviews posted online, though I made
many more interviews over 4 years or so.

www.Irishroots.com  Chat and sing
Mike OLaughlin at the Irish Roots Cafe

Date of event, Friday, July 11
time: 4 oclock Eastern time, 3 oclock Central.

Very Simple To Do
Yes, all you need is your laptop or desktop
computer. Click the link below and you are there.
If you click on the reminder button, they will
send you a reminder e-mail before the show, which
is helpful.

How it Works
It is simple. You will see me on the screen,
I will chat a bit and sing for this event on Friday
at 4 oclock Eastern time. (9 oclock in Ireland I think).
Just follow the simple instruction they have on the screen.

You can, if you want, type on your keyboard and I
will see what you type as you type it. I will respond
on the screen best as I can. That’s the deal.

Where am I..
This day I am at the Irish Roots Cafe in the back room, chatting
with you as we go along. For some shows, members of the
Irish Roots Cafe house band may come along. (We are
preparing for the Dublin, Ohio Irish Festival for the
next two weeks.) That can add a fiddle or mandolin and
more to the show.) I also do these streaming video shows
at other spots in the community, like pubs and house parties.

Todays Plan
I will try three traditional Irish songs concerning
County Kerry, and chat a bit as we go along.
The three songs, in three different styles are,

1. The Accursed Kerryman (in Irish)

2. The Rambling Kerryman (in English)

3. Days of the Kerry Dancing.

There you have it. If you like what you see
or hear you can even leave a small tip, but
that is totally optional.

I may try some genealogy related broadcasts too,
depending on your requests, so feel free to pass
on any ideas. There is no limit to what this
streaming video can do.
